Re: Coronavirus

The government have stopped counting people who die 28 days after a positive test. So people that die on ventilators are no longer counted. Dodgy.

Re: Outdoor Gigs

Here's a suggestion. Each gig is put on 3 times.
1. Under 45s with no health problems
2. 45+ with no health problems
3. People with health problems + their carers if they have one.

Not necessarily in that order

Re: The Meaning of Metal

Just to go a bit more abstract: years ago, I read a quote attributed to the guy from Sarcófago, who said, "Metal is a spiritual protest." This was discussed as a contrast to punks political protest. I thought it was a really good way of encapsulating it, regarding metals purpose for the l...

Other than that, I've just been watching old movies for the past few weeks.


Yes, agreed- Better Call Saul is excellent. If you like Bob Odenkirk (Saul) he is also in The Post on Netflix which is about an American newspaper.

Re: Next Announcement

Unless this virus fucks off very quickly (which I can't see happening) there's absolutely no chance Bloodstock will happen this year sadly.
